Re: Missing records from Dunajow #austria-czech #poland #galicia

The only Jewish vital records that have survived for Dunajow are 1924-1934 births, marriages and deaths. JRI-Poland has indexed the marriage and death records and those indices are contained in the JRI-Poland online database. The births are not available for public use until all the records in this birth register are over 100 years old. 

To find other relevant records in the Archives of Ukraine and Poland, refer to Miriam Weiner's Routes to Roots Foundation inventory of archival documents at

I'm researching the Schwartz family from Dunajow (also known as Dunajewer, now called Dunayiv in Ukraine). I can't find a single family record from Dunajow, and there are only a handful of Schwartz records from there in general. Were some names, births, deaths, etc. simply not recorded? or have there been issues with indexing and publishing records from certain towns?
